Shivers.
Started to replay it again yesterday, and it's just as good as it was when it was released.

The game that got me started with adventure games... Shivers.. Followed by all of the Gabriel Knight series. Sorry, just one wouldn't do!

That's an interesting comment, chrissie. I wonder how many of us still rate the first adventure game we ever played as our favorite. I was lucky enough to start with a real classic and I certainly do.

Funnily enough traveller, I had got hooked on 'Sega Mega' games before that & a few PS1 games that were entertaining but um...brainless! I ended up with BS1 in a charity compilation after that, tried it & thought that there was too much talking & 'dismissed it'! I didn't have anything else to play a few months later so loaded it up & persisted with it to discover such a wonderful story & game. I've since then just wanted more of the same - it took me 2 years to find BS2 on PS1 - way before I had access to a PC from 2000 onwards & was so unaware of the many games available for PC at the time.
BS1 was the game that was responsible for me becoming a complete BAAGer! lol

chrissie, I had never played much of anything but the original Kwazi's Quest Mahjong (which was pretty good, btw, except for those dumb poems), when I ran across a demo for Grim Fandango on CNet. Fifty megabytes and it took me an entire day to download it on dialup. Those were NOT the good old days. grin

Fantastic story, great characters, wonderful voice acting, beautiful graphics, music that's perfectly suited to the game...any more superlatives I can stick in there? I had to have the game and got one of the last copies Lucas Arts sold, I think. Fifteen bucks in a jewel case, then the game disappeared from their site.

See, Lucas Arts? See what happens when you ignore Grim? You get swallowed by Disney! Ha!

Gil,
I remember seeing a text adventure way back in the 70's but never played it myself. My first was one of the early King's Quest games which really set the standard for the time. I have fond and frustrating memories of those games. I chose Syberia earlier and still choose it but the King's Quest/Space Quest games are memorable in their own way to me.

Hmmmm, well for the nostalgic "favorite one" then I have to list the game that started me down the adventure trail which was King's Quest.

However, if I'm being honest my overall favorite, if I absolutely have to pick one (as has been written here often) would have to be The Longest Journey.
